Multigraph Typesetter help needed
« on: June 20, 2017, 12:00:56 PM »
Does anyone have any information on how these mats were assembled before transfer to the printing unit.

Can't find a manual anywhere.

Although I don't have any material to help with your quest, I do have the equipment -- and the type is assembled in a long slide that positively holds the type as it is assembled. If you spot a mistake, all type up to that point has to be slid off and a correction made.

Once a line is assembled, it is then slid onto the slotted drum used on a Multigraph, held in place by a special clamp, and the next line assembled.

It was described as a machine so easy to use even your secretary can do it!
